back to lightbox

I'm back at my little lightbox working on a Tandem shortfilm.
It's a relief to get a scene, which someone else has planned out for you, and you know those 150 frames on a dope sheet are your only worry in the world. That doesn't make it a relaxing experience however; 2D is so rare now, that every new job feels like a mini hurdle, where you're not sure yet if you still can animate the old school way, because your mind has been conditioned to think in flash terms. But beside a slight cramp in my right hand (haven't flipped paper for quite a while) those handy LAS tricks are all coming back to me.
The picture has got nothing to do with this post, by the way. He's the character I animated on Dan Greaves' previous shortfilm 'Little Things'
